Kansas City started rookie Bob Holliday (0-2 3.60 ERA) for the third time and the rookie, acquired from Boston on August 1st, called up on August 10th, had his best start impressing his team by going seven inning allowing seven hits and just one run did not allow a walk and struck out six.

Holliday was acquired from Boston for back up catcher Steve Allanson. A great trade for Kansas City!

Dutch Chase hit a solo homerun in the bottom of the second inning off Holliday. It was Chase's third of the season, the fourth allowed in 15 innings by Holliday.

A single by Seattle starting pitcher Bill Kennedy and a double off the bat of All Star Harry Foley tied the game 1-1in the5th inning.

Tom Bohler took over for the final two innings.

Boehler gave up no runs on two hits with one strikeout. and got the win when Kansas City scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to break a 1-1 tie.

''O'Connell has pitched with some big leads in his starts so a veteran pitcher like him will make the opposition put the ball in play in games like that which drives u some of his numbers, but the wa;lk totals have been a concern so far.'' said the Boston manager after the game.
